A very intense upper level storm system will sweep by on Wednesday. The highest severe weather risk will be northeast of Texas but we may have to deal with some severe weather in Northeast Texas Wednesday Morning. We may also see a marginal severe weather risk in East and Southeast Texas during the afternoon hours. Otherwise the most singificant impacts from this storm system will come in the form of very strong northwest winds. As the low pressure intensifies and moves away we’ll see a strong pressure gradeint develop. The pressure gradeit will result in increasing northwest to west winds during morning and afternoon hours on Wednesday. Winds will subside by Wednesday evening. The northern Texas Panhandle could experience wind gusts near 60 MPH on Wednesday with wind gusts of 45 to 50 MPH across West Texas, Northwest Texas, and western North Texas. Any recently plowed fields may caused blowing dust. Freezing temperatures are also possible Thursday Morning across the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, and parts of Northwest Texas. We’ll talk about all this in more detail in our usual evening blog. This powerful storm system will bring a blizzard to parts of Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas where 2 to 6 inches of snow may fall with wind gusts approaching an insane 75 MPH!
